We all love them. Great project cars, that is. Although they take time and money (and possibly a marriage or two), the eventual satisfaction is often beyond words. More than likely, it's best expressed when driving your new toy down a stretch barren highway - during a sunset. Poetic? Sure, maybe, but restoring an old car is something many of us have on our to-do lists.
In the case of the Porsche Club of America, who's teamed up with Porsche Classic, they'll soon be able to mark off a 1973 Porsche 911 T Coupe from their completed list. Set to highlight Porsche Classic's capabilities to do a complete restoration that's normally done in factories, the restorer has compiled inside information on how 911's were built in the 70s from former Porsche factory employees. For each step of the project, Porsche Classic will release photos and video of their progress. So far, they've completely disassembled the car and are rebuilding the transmission.
If all goes to plan, the restoration will be done for the 2011 Porsche Parade in August, where it will be auctioned off.
